"The sentences are clear, short, and concise. The text gives excellent advice and does it in a manner that uplifts a student's desire to use these methods. It does not talk down to the student. I have had many students comment on how well they like the text and how it has improved their study habits. . . . The major strength of the text is that it gives sound advice on how to overcome all of the problems students have when taking a math class."

— Chris R. Siragusa, Cypress College

"The goal of my 25-year teaching career has been to give students the self-confidence and the concrete skills to succeed in math classes. They need to be taught how to learn math as well as to learn the content of math. I will definitely use Mastering Mathematics again."

— Pamela Cohen, New Hampshire College

"I feel the majority of the students we see in developmental courses just don't know how to succeed in math and many feel that they never will. A book like this can be the help students need to turn their failure around."

— Janet Evert, Erie Community College
